History[]

Roma is the daughter of Merlyn, and like him is an extra-dimensional mystic of unknown origins, currently based in the realm of Otherworld. She was present when her father empowered Brian Braddock to become Captain Britain, and accepted Brian's vow to be her knight and uphold the ideals of Camelot as she exhorted him to do.

Roma later fought alongside the Black Knight and his allies to protect Camelot from the forces of Necromon, wielding in a sword in the thick of battle. Following her father's apparent death, she succeeded him as Guardian of the Omniverse, operating out of the Starlight Citadel. She is served, somewhat reluctantly, by Saturnyne, who acts as her Majordomo.

Like her father, Roma has more than one form. She can look like a human woman, or like a pale elfin being with slit pupils, pointed ears, a high forehead and jet-black hair.

Notes[]

  • Since the dissolving of Marvel UK, Roma has been integrated fully into the mainstream Marvel Universe. She has strong ties to the X-Men.
  • The first words Roma speaks on her first appearance function as an invocation, a welcome and a description of the beauty of the universe and her role in it. Merlyn's first words are a rebuke and a warning, making it clear that if the addressee doesn't pull his socks up he could be in serious trouble.

Trivia[]

Names Merlyn had for Roma included "my jewel", "my pale flower" and "my lunar orchid."
